The White-rumped Vulture, by Saniar Rahman Rahul

This is the White-rumped Vulture, an Old World vulture, which is possibly the most abundant large bird of prey in the world and often considered a nuisance, but is now rare, as they declined rapidly in numbers, up to 99.9% between 1992 and 2007. I took this photograph in Sreemangal, from Lawachara National Park.

Photographer: Saniar Rahman Rahul (Dhaka, Bangladesh) Registered
Saniar Rahman Rahul was the first winner for ‘Photo of the Month Award’ in June 2010. He was fascinated by seeing his father taking pictures with a camera while his family was in Iraq during his childhood. Later in life, in 1997, while he became very much attached with his profession of ‘graphic design’, Rahul rediscovered the creative side of photography. He started his career as a professional graphic designer in October of 1995, in a pre-press house called Color Scan, which is one of the pioneers in the pre-process printing media in Bangladesh. Afterwards, he moved to Power Point, another pre-press house. Before he finally settled into advertising, he also worked in an IT company called Abtab IT. Moving to advertising from printing media was a big step for him. In 2005, he joined G3, a special wing of Gray Worldwide. Two years later, he moved to Paper Rhyme. Now he is working as the Art Director of Grey World Wide, one of the ten largest advertising agencies in the world.
